About This Brand

We believe in a promise to produce high-quality primal foods, free of chemicals and preservatives, eating like our ancestors did–hunters and gatherers. What started as a personal mission launched The New Primal from a home business to a national brand. Our grass-fed beef comes solely from the vast, rolling hills of New Zealand. In nature, good things take time. Our cattle are humanely raised on family farm pastures, where they are free to mature naturally and feed on grass year round without ever being injected with growth hormones or antibiotics. Due to New Zealand’s neutral climate and year-round grass growth, there is never a need to supplement their food in the winter. We use only whole muscle cuts from the top-round of the animal. The use of GMOs in agriculture is illegal in New Zealand, so there is never a risk of GMO runoff contaminating the soil (as is the current challenge with the majority of US Raised Beef).

Why You’ll Love Turkey Jerky

Tackle hunger and stay fuller longer with New Primal Turkey Jerky. These energizing protein packed morsels are made from turkey breasts that are marinated in a sweet and savory combo: Apple Cider Vinegar with just a hint of pineapple juice and sweet honey. But that’s not all—mouthwatering hints of onion, white pepper, and ginger come into play, rounding out the amazing flavors for a snack that is sure to satisfy.

New Primal Turkey Jerky believes in producing quality food from Certified Humanely Raised Turkeys that get to roam freely about the pasture, and are never given artificial hormones or antibiotics. While enjoying this delicious gluten-free snack that is entirely Paleo, preservative free, and soy free, one can feel good that’s it’s coming from a trusted brand where products are ethically sourced.

Turkey jerky nutrition

When people think of jerky, they don’t normally think of it as a healthy snack. More than likely, they’re picturing those highly processed beef and turkey jerkies that get sold at gas stations—those are, in fact, pretty bad since they’re loaded with sodium, nitrites, and nitrates. While some brands, as mentioned, produce foods that are unhealthy because of added artificial ingredients, New Primal Turkey Jerky only produces quality snacks that are made from wholesome, real ingredients. In the ingredients list one can see:

  • Turkey breast that is not pumped full of hormones or antibiotics.
  • Honey to make it irresistibly sweet.
  • Pineapple juice to add depth to the flavor, making it fruity and exotic.
  • Apple cider vinegar contributes a bit of tang and some bite.
  • Smoked sea salt gives it that smoky flavor that’s often associated with jerky.
  • Lemon juice to give that zest.
  • Granulated garlic, ginger, and onion which make it a little bit spicy.
  • Black pepper, white pepper, and paprika, to create a perfect finishing touch to the fresh taste and savory flavor.

There’s no mystery meat in here! New Primal Turkey Jerky is real turkey breast that’s infused with intense flavor that will satisfy those snack cravings while also giving a big energy boost.


Just like other meats, New Primal Turkey Jerky offers lots of energizing protein that will provide fuel for the rest of the day! Protein acts as a building block for the body’s tissue, such as skin, nails, organs, and ligaments, and without enough of it to help repair these vital parts of the body, one can feed worn down and exhausted. A protein boost will increase energy levels and make it so that the body doesn’t have to work as hard to restore that tissue.

Additionally, protein adds to that full feeling that kicks in after eating. That means people can enjoy some New Primal Turkey Jerky and not feel hungry once again a mere hour later. Since it’s a serious snack with big flavor that will keep the belly satisfied, it will also lead to less snacking throughout the day, helping with weight loss and weight management.


Although it’s not a vast amount, New Primal Turkey Jerky does contain iron. This is a vital part of blood health, represented by the presence of hemoglobin in the body. If lacking iron that means the body will struggle to make healthy oxygen-carrying red blood cells—and a deficiency will lead to feeling tired and lethargic. By eating the recommended value each day, it can improved blood health and energy levels.


Turkey breast also has zinc, a macronutrient that is absolutely necessary for survival. It’s known to help prevent colds better than vitamin C and since it aids in cell growth and development, it also contributes to overall wellness. Zinc is beneficial for immune defense, neurological function, and hormone regulation.

B vitamins

New Primal Turkey Jerky has a solid amount of B vitamins, which are especially known for their energizing properties. They aid in converting carbs into energy, also called glucose, and are also vital for red blood cell formation. Without it, the body may struggle to get enough oxygen, leading to a worn down feeling. Vitamin B6, along with the iron and protein, will act as the perfect afternoon pick-me-up to beat through the 3 o’clock slump.

Calories (or lack thereof)

An added bonus: New Primal Turkey Jerky is an ideal snack for those who are watching their calorie intake. With only 70 calories per serving, it can take care of that urge to munch on something without going overboard.

Foods to enjoy with New Primal Turkey Jerky

New Primal Turkey Jerky is convenient for those who are on-the-go and need a boost in energy without sitting down for a full meal. The resealable bag makes it easy to stash in a gym bag, purse, suitcase, or even in the glove box. For those who want to enjoy it with other convenient treats, here are some Thrive Market offerings that will round out the snack perfectly.

Pure Organic Wildberry Apple Fruit & Veggie Strip

So Delicious!

I wasn't expecting a lot from this, but I was very pleasantly surprised. I loved this jerky! Would buy it again and more of it so I can have it for a snack at work!

- Courtney

Loved it!

I love the flavor of this jerky and I love that I can pronounce EVERY ingredient. Yes it's a bit pricy, but not really if you consider how much regular jerky costs and those have all the artificial ingredients. I am always willing to spend more money on something I'm putting in my body rather than spending money on an expensive bag or something.

- Laura Florissant-Kost

Too Salty!

We had to throw this away, it was waaaaaay to salty and I love salt. My husband loves Turkey Jerky and he was really disappointed on this one.

- Sharon

Way too salty

This jerky was way too salty and the texture of the jerky is too dry

- Roxi

So salty!

Pretty tasty but I honestly couldn't get over how salty each piece was. I love salt! I add it to everything but this was just too much.

- Andrea

Like This

I do like this jerky. Unlike other reviewers, I found very large pieces of jerky in the bag. I like that this is turkey and is not processed using chemicals. I find this a very good turkey jerky product.

- Jody

Glad to find something that tastes good

No bad additives, good taste, good ingredients, good texture. I wish it wasn't so expensive but good ingredients cost more.

- Cathy

Dry and fake smoke flavor

I like the Epic products much better. This jerky was very dry and I am not a fan of the flavor from the smoked sea salt.

- Monica Simpson

New Prime Turkey Jerkey

The best I found on a market, simple ingredients, melts in you mouth kind of jerkey

- Ilona

Turkey Jerky

Not worth the $ as all the pieces in both bags were like "crumbs" there were no "pieces" of jerky at all. I won't spend the $ on this item again. Taste/blend was fine.

- Genie


I like this jerky because it has less sugar than most. And it tastes delicious. A little on the salty side but very good.

- Janet

Did not like

This came in crumbs and was awful tasting. I would not purchase it again, nor recommend it.

- Diane


I was very excited to find turkey jerky that was made with free-range birds. But I found this jerky to be so salty as to be almost inedible. My husband found it pretty salty, but not offensively so. Hence the two stars (I otherwise would've given just one.)

I won't let my kids eat this because of the salt content and won't reorder. The search continues . . .

- Vivian

Favorite jerky

This jerky is a staple for me. It has a good, more chewy, texture and simple flavor. Great quality product.

- Leah


This turkey jerky is really delicious. It is tender and easy to chew. It is naturally sweetened using pienapple juice, honey, and no sugar. I would buy this product again.

- Derick


If you like ginger, then this is for you. It's so delicious. Not tough whatsoever. The perfect jerky.

- Kristen

Turk ey jerky

Great,wish the bags were bigger

- Karen

so good

this is my go-to jerkly, I love it!

- Mary


I received this in a "jerky sampler." I'm glad to have the option to try new/different flavors. This one is good... but much too salty for my personal taste. I like the ginger and pepper flavors, but could do with a little less salt.

- Ruth


Tender, flavorful- fantastic purchase at a decent price.

- Glynn

eh its ok

would have given it a better rating however the pepper used was way to much -- there is much more to flavoring than pepper

- Jodi


First time ordering and consuming this product but certainly won't be the last. Delicious product without all the filler ingredients! I highly recommend this all jerky eaters!

- Chadwick

Too salty!

Wow, these are salty! The texture is crumbly too. Not like the beef jerky, which is really perfect. The turkey is flavorful, but way too much salt.

- Debi

First time buyer

This is the first time I purchased the New Primal Turkey Jerky. The product definitely tastes more genuine and less processed than most other jerky brands available on the market. Flavor was quite good.

- Monte

Yum! (and doesn't break my teeth)

Yup, it's good, it's seasoned and it is not so tough that you feel like you are chewing shoe leather like many other jerky brands! Worth buying!

- Janine

A+, 10/10

Don't listen to other reviews about this being too tough or too.. whatever.

It is the most perfect and delicious jerky you can buy. It's a bag of gluten free, paleo, grass-fed dehydrated animal meat. What more can you want? Buy 10 bags. Stash them around your house for hanger attacks. Give one to your UPS delivery driver when your Thrive box comes. He/She will thank you for the best jerky ever.

- Anita

Great jerky

Another of my favorites!! I hate when I run out.

- Melody

Excellent Product

Great tasting product........but not enough product!!

- Ron

Turkey jerky primal

Everyone lobed it!

- Laura

Too salty!

I like the texture, but it's hard to detect any flavor other than salt. This jerky is much to salty for me, so I will probably not buy it again. Seriously, the salt should be cut in half.

- Jennifer

Too salty!

I like the texture, but it's hard to detect any flavor other than salt. It's much too salty for me, so I don't think I will re-purchase. Seriously, the salt should be cut in half.

- Jennifer


So much flavor!! The best ever turkey jerky. You can taste all the passion pit into this product!!!

- Heidi

Turkey Jerky

Really tasty...will buy again

- Nea Paquet


These were really good. Sweet and smoky. I bought them because my toddler likes slim jims. He didn't like these lol I would buy them again but I wish there was more in the package for the price.

- charita


My daughter and I are very picky with our jerky. I ordered this one for my daughter because it looked like one of the plainest options available. She loves turkey jerky but is not a fan of too much spice, and unfortunately the ACV and pepper in this jerky was too much for her. BUT it was perfect for me! I love that this is made with ACV and I found the flavor to not be overpowering. It would require a little less pepper for my 9 year old to enjoy, but mama loves pepper and will be ordering this again!

- Mandy

Still looking for an unsweetened jerky

I love turkey jerky but can't eat most because of all the added sugar. This jerky is the best I've found but it still has added sugar.

- Lynne


I REALLY love this jerky!! It's a new favorite!

- Melody

great flavor

Great flavor but very very tough. More tough than usual for jerky.

- Kory

Primal Turkey Jerky

Excellent product/taste
For the price, there isn't much in the bag but great product

- Ron Jackson

Intresting tatse, but way too tuff!

If primal could just make a moist jerky, I'd be a happy camper! The flavor is really bold, I can totally see why some wouldn't care for it. I associate the tatse to Lima beans, not sure if anyone else did too. Anyways, you get a hint of lime upfront, then the ginger and pepper start to become more and more pronounced as you chomp your way through it, then when you think the rides over... the pepper afterburn kicks in! It's not a bad tatse, but the texture is going to give ur jaw a work out!

- CR

Best Jerky I've EVER eaten

Spicy and a little sweet I was so happy to have a healthy version to finally eat!

- Susan

Terrific Paleo snack.

This turkey jerky is terrific for my Paleo diet. It's gluten free, grass fed and high in protein. I have some right after my workouts to sustain my energy.

I would probably consume even more of this if it wasn't so spicy. I have a very low tolerance with spice, so if others can handle it, this can be a very enjoyable snack.

- M. Shelton

Great for Airplanes!

I bought this jerky for a long tip across the country. When I am on planes I avoid their meals at all costs! The person next to me really appreciated this jerky too! Grass-fed is a big thing for me being that I am in the health food industry myself. I know that it is better!

What I didn't care to much for was the seasoning. I loved the turkey and it wasn't overly dry like some brands. This one just was not seasoned 100% the way I like it- thus 4 stars. I would buy it again, just another flavor.

- Kevin Blair

Great Texture

This product has a great texture, not too hard and not too soft. It has the perfect blend of flavors, I consider it the best turkey jerky I've ever had. It also really helps that it is paleo approved! Recommended!

- Cory George


It tastes like cooked turkey with a ton of granules of spice on it which made it taste gritty.

- Douglas

Best Jerky

I've tried many turkey jerky varieties, and this is by far the best. It is moist and flavorful, with hints of spices.

- Christy


Very flavorful, I also love the smell , totally worth the buy.

- Vonna


Best flavor ever !!!
